Lonely Planet Experiences: Private Walking Tour of Asheville

Lonely Planet Experiences: Private Walking Tour of Asheville

Before 'farm to table' and 'buy local' were 21st century catchphrases, they were a way of life in Asheville. The best way to uncover the city's friendly, small-town vibe is to enjoy it with a person who calls it home. Seemingly everyone you will meet on your private tour will be an artist - that's because Asheville has a way of bringing out the inner-artist in everyone, including you. Whether you fancy trying glassblowing or prefer simply to get lost in the blue hues of mountain-scapes, you will leave the city more in touch with your artistic side than when you arrived. As you wander, enjoy the eclectic architecture which captures the nature of the city: a collective of people who fought to preserve history at every turn. Your tour finishes in the South Slope Brewing District, where you can enjoy a large, local beer and get tips for the best way to spend the rest of your time in the Blue Ridge Mountains.

River Arts District Tip-Based Sightseeing Walking Tour

Special Offer

River Arts District Tip-Based Sightseeing Walking Tour

For years, the River Arts District or "RAD," has been a popular spot for visitors; however, many guests arrive with the question: "What do we do once we arrive?" In response, I created a tour that would hit the highlights and provide my guests with a hands-on RAD experience they would not forget! We will start at the Magnetic Theatre, where they will perform a brief act! Next, we will walk down Depot Street to learn about the history of the RAD, the artists, and their galleries. We will stop at the Grind Coffee for a taste of local brews, a live demonstration of clay sculpting at ClayWorks, a private tour of the historical Grey Eagle Music Venue and a glass blowing demonstration at the NC Glasswork Center. Then we will walk alongside the river, learning stories about the legends of the French Broad and what activities you can do on the river post-tour! We will finish on Foundy Street to learn all about the graffiti that covers the walls and the creative local businesses.
